          Location idyllic, staff very helpful and friendly. Food excellent with a good choice. Hotel bedroom and lounges pleasantly decorated. A very enjoyable break. Lovely coastal position with local walks and places of interest nearby. Gardens, castles and golf courses nearby.

          I've seen a few comments that dogs are welcome around the grounds so just wondering can you have a wonder round of an evening and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of tea outside?

          It is a lovely secluded bay, forest tracks as well as the gardens, stretch of beach at the back of the hotel, there is also a cliff walk that can be taken from the hotel, no doubt they could supply you with more information.
